Personal Tutors are responsible for the pastoral support of students. All students have a Personal Tutor who monitors their attendance and progress, provides support and intervenes when there are concerns about a student’s progress. They refer serious concerns up to Senior Tutors and Directors.
UCAS Team provides support for year 13 students and ex-students who are in the process of completing their UCAS application. If a student has not yet informed us that they want a UCAS Adviser they should contact Student Services.
Student Advice and Support Team provides specialist support to students with particular needs. This includes students with learning needs such as dyslexia and students with physical disabilities. They also provide a range of support to students needing advice about issues such as housing and finance. They also provide advice and support to students facing difficult personal, emotional or family circumstances.
Professional Counselling is available and referral forms can be found in Student Advice and Support and outside room G101.
Health and Wellbeing is important to the college. Being safe and healthy are key themes throughout the further education sector. There is a range of information available in Student Advice and Support (room G27) and health promotion campaigns are run to increase students' awareness of various health issues.

Our Apprenticeships, Widening Participation, Student Advice and Support, First Generation Scholar, Aspire Tutors, Vocational Experience, Admissions and Work Store are all accredited to the Matrix quality standard for information advice and guidance services.
The Matrix Standard is a kite mark for the quality of information, advice and guidance services, akin to Investors in People or the Investors in Careers. As such, it is the quality framework for organisations to assess and measure their information, advice and/or guidance services, which ultimately supports individuals in their choice of career, learning, work and life goals.
